Gallery A3 announces an open call for artists for its 9th Annual Juried Show, to be held August 1-31, 2024. Submissions will be accepted May 28-June 28, 2024.

Gallery A3’s Annual Juried Show offers local and regional artists an opportunity to exhibit their work in a downtown Amherst gallery and, in turn, gives the community a chance to discover artists who may be living just across town or just across state lines. This year, the theme is Impermanence. “Gallery A3 is seeking art that speaks to the ever-changing, transient, and often cyclical nature of all things as experienced in the realm of human relationships and emotions and as encountered in the material and natural worlds,” explains exhibit coordinator, Paula Hite. The juror, Maria Timina, is the Curator of Russian and European Art at the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College. An Opening Reception is scheduled for Thursday, August 1, from 5-8:00 p.m. at the gallery, 28 Amity Street 1D and an online Art Forum, open to the public, is scheduled for Thursday, August 15, at 7:30 p.m.

Guidelines for Submissions 
Artists are invited to submit images May 28-June 28. Entry fees are $38 for three entries, $7 for one additional entry, maximum four entries per artist. Artwork must be no wider than 26 inches. Jury results will be posted online on July 15, and accepted art should be delivered to the gallery on July 28 and 29. For more on how to submit work, go to the gallery website:
